District 201Q2 Lions Miss Popularity Quest
MAJOR UPDATE - PLEASE READ!!!
There seems to be some confusion with the Article in the December edition of “The Northern Lion”. The District Miss Popularity Quest has NOT been suspended. It was only the Personality Quest.
I am now calling for Entrants for this years Miss Popularity Quest.
As we start a new Century of Service what a better opportunity for a club and its members to celebrate this by having an entrant in the Miss Popularity Quest.
A Zone can also get involved in the Quest by getting an entrant and clubs in that zone each doing a fundraising event for their Zone Entrant. 80%+ of funds raised are returned to clubs for donation to charities of their choice.
The Miss Popularity Quest closes on the 31st July 2018. The entrant needs to fundraise, $2,500.00, by the end of September to be eligible for Judging. There is also a $100 entry fee.
$100 entry fee can be paid by direct debit into Westpac Flinders Mall branch Townsville BSB 034- 222 Account Number 33-8096 Account Name Miss Popularity Quest.
Please think about supporting this great Quest and sponsor a young Lady from your local community. The Judging will take place at our District Convention on the weekend of 12th to 14th October in Hughenden.
For further information please contact me or there is further information and Quest booklets and entry forms on our District Website.
Yours in Lionism

Kaydee Chatfield - 2017 Miss Popularity Entrant - Yungaburra Lioness Club
We all know that person that is good at absolutely everything.... right? Well, I am not that person but I am the first one with my hand in the air to give it a go! My name is Kaydee Chatfield and I am a 22 year old local from the beautiful Atherton Tablelands. Currently I am working at the local Foodworks as a grocery manager. I don't take life too seriously, so I like to approach things with a smile on my face. All jokes aside, I am very enthusiastic and dedicated to my sports and my golden retriever, Macey. You'll often find me behind a boat on the dam, running around the touch football field, competing in local triathlon events or at the gym. Time is something I don't have a lot of at the end of each day, but I'll always be willing to lend a hand with fundraising or searching for a new challenge. I love people, I love hearing about their experiences and I love feeling apart of the community. This year I am honoured to be representing the Yungaburra Lioness Club and I am thankful to be involved in the 2017 Miss Popularity Quest, raising funds for a great cause.
